Adult Cleaning

There’s very little that’s more important to your dental hygiene than a regular cleaning. To prevent decay, bad breath or other problems, a complete cleaning twice a year goes a long way to extending the life of your smile.

Cleanings at Fort Des Moines Dental are comprehensive, including brushing for plaque, tooth scaling and polishing and debridement if necessary. Regular cleanings allow the professionals at Fort Des Moines Dental to identify and prevent any number of potential problems and protect your mouth.

“I have been coming to Fort Des Moines Dental since I was 16 years old and now I’m 67 years old. I’ve been through three dentists and each one has been great. The dental assistants have done a good job and all were very friendly. I would recommend the clinic to anyone needing dental care.”
